Definition

Opinions in online social media refer to a variety of items that can be shared and spread via social connections. Examples include textual posts, images, videos, URLs, topics, sentiments, stances, preferences, and events. This entry aims at discussing recent advances on modeling, mining, and analyzing the diffusion of such opinions in social networks.
